We had a few hours in this area and decided to take the ferry from Rocky Hill to Glastonbury (on foot no car), then enjoy an evening walk on the Glastonbury side. This is a 3 car ferry and about a 10 minute ride, but you are on the water and can see a ways up and down the river.... More

A scenic ride across the river.....we didn't have any little people with us, but kids would love to "drive a car right onto the ferry" and then get out to watch and observe the water ride.

You need to make this a part of your experience. It is short buy memorable...and a real old fashioned treat. There are local restaurants close by on either side of the river.

The park on the Rocky Hill side is so pretty,peaceful and quiet. The lawn area has picnic tables and benches. Many of the tables are in the shade. During the summer months my daughter and I will pack a lunch and do our crossword puzzles. Now that it's cooler I park the car facing the river and sit in the... More

This a great "quick" trip across the CT River. You can take your car, or just walk on. There is a quaint restaurant on the Rocky Hill side to grab an ice cream or coffee. Beautiful views, great for all ages!

Just delightful! A short but scenic trip across the Ct. river. It is the oldest continuous running ferry in the United States. If your lucky, you may see an eagle or two along the way!

In the past 4 years this restaurant has changed hands 3 or 4 times. Even when they served up bowling alley grub and the wasps were swarming, we enjoyed the lovely view of the Connecticut River. Now that it's gotten a bit upscale and pricey we go a bit less often. Still, the view is sweet.

I have been going there since I was a little girl. My grandfather took me every day. You can go on ferry in a car, motorcycle, bike or just walk on. Its about a 10 minute ride to the other side. I take my bike from the Rocky Hill side and bike through South Glastonbury. The Rocky Hill side has... More

A small park on the shore of the Connecticut River, good for spending some quite time, reading and/or eating a sandwich. It has a boat launching ramp and a small store nearby. Good views of the river.

If you want to take a trip back in time to experience a more relaxed lifestyle, take the Glastonbury/Rocky HillFerry. It's a beautiful spot on the Connecticut River, serene and picturesque. I recently decided to take it back to Glastonbury on a busy Friday afternoon when Rte 91 North was backed up from the Wethersfield/Rock Hill exit North. It was... More
